Another question of curiosity, not in any trouble. First the question then why I am asking. When using the built-in System Restore, do you have a better chance of it working when you reboot and use an USB Recovery Drive to get SR started instead of starting SR when you are already booted into Windows?

Why I am asking. I have never used SR, not even enabled. Yes, I have to keep turning it off every time Microsoft updates my system with a major Feature update. I am thinking of uninstalling one of my backup/recovery programs because it is old, slow, and clunky, still quite reliable, but quite clunky (try saying "quite clunky" three time as fast as you can). To take its place I thought of the possibility of enabling SR. Yes, I understand that SR is not even remotely the same as a complete backup/recovery program, but it would be better than nothing and I don't have to install anything.

So if I were to do this and the day would come that I would need to use SR, would rebooting and using it from recovery USB be more dependable than starting it from within Windows, or doesn't it matter?
Thanks much, Bill

I don't think it matters when using System Restore.

I use the built in System Image as one of my backups, nothing to install as its right in the Control Panel.

I don't think it matters either.
